Technical Thingies
Posted by Sam at 9:20 AM

Ok... I'm back. Did you even notice that I was gone?

Anyway, I just made the move from iPowerWeb to Lunarpages. Why? Well, duh! Check out the slick front page at Lunarpages:

Compare it to the drab iPowerWeb home page, and I think my reasoning will become obvious:

I don't know about you guys, but I choose my web hosting company solely on the coolness of their home page. I mean, that's what's important, right? Who cares about all of those lame stats and numbers. 12% Uptime this, 7000 FTP accounts that... lame! Just give me a cool flash demo on a high tech home page, and I'm sold! Hook, line, and sinker.

The real reason for the switch was because iPowerWeb was sticking to their offer that I signed on with from two years ago... even though their current hosting package is twice as good for the same price. That, and I wanted to take advantage of Lunarpages' add-on domain hosting thingy (along with a few other technical thingies). We'll see how it goes. It's the same price for more thingies... so what have I got to lose?

I noticed you were gone during the boring stretch at the Library...but I started reading up on Flash animation. Still somewhat intimidated however.

Why didn't you consult me first?

I could have hosted you FREE and handled all that shit for you.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
